Paprika Ingredient Manufacturer

Paprika is a spice extracted from the dried peppers of the plant Capsicum annuum. It comes in a wide variety of flavors, including sweet, smoked, and hot.

Paprika is also a popular supplement ingredient because it is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

1. Highly Nutritious

Paprika is packed with beneficial compounds and micronutrients, as a single tablespoon (6.8 grams) of this spice contains:

  • 19 calories
  • 2 grams of fiber
  • 4 grams of carbohydrates
  • A little less than 1 gram of fat
  • A little less than 1 gram of protein
  • 19% of the DRI (Daily Recommended Intake) of vitamin A 
  • 8% of the DRI of iron 
  • 13% of the DRI of vitamin E
  • 9% of the DRI of vitamin B6

Furthermore, this spice is loaded with healthy antioxidants that protect your body against free radicals (reactive molecules that harm our bodies).

Paprika packs antioxidants that belong to the carotenoid family, including lutein, capsanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta carotene. 

2. May Aid Healthy Vision

Paprika is loaded with several nutrients that are believed to boost eye health, including lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin E, and beta carotene. (1)

As a matter of fact, these nutrients are directly linked to a decreased risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). (2)

Among these nutrients, lutein and zeaxanthin are the most beneficial for eye health.

According to this study conducted on over 1,800 women, those who consumed the highest amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin were 32% less likely to develop cataracts as compared to those with the lowest intakes.

Another study conducted on 4,519 adults found out similar results: participants with the highest intake of lutein and zeaxanthin faced a lower risk of suffering from AMD.

3. May Reduce Inflammation

Certain varieties of paprika contain a compound called capsaicin, which is believed to reduce inflammation by binding itself to receptors of your nerve cells.

Multiple studies suggest that capsaicin protects our bodies against several inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, including arthritis, nerve damage, and digestive tissues.

According to this study conducted on 376 adults with gastrointestinal diseases, capsaicin supplements help prevent digestive damage and inflammation.

Furthermore, another study conducted on rats concludes that taking capsaicin supplements for 10 days reduced inflammation associated with an autoimmune condition.


Health Issues Associated With Paprika Deficiency

People who don’t ingest paprika face an increased risk of suffering from:

  • High cholesterol
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Certain types of diabetes
  • Certain eye issues, including AMD and cataracts
  • Certain stomach issues, including inflammation

If you want to stay clear of these health issues, then add a paprika supplement to your diet.


Daily Recommended Intake

An ideal dose of paprika is individual-based. It is determined by the following factors:

  • Individual’s age
  • Individual’s health
  • The condition the individual is trying to treat

Currently, more research is required because there isn’t enough scientific data to determine the daily recommended intake of paprika for the average individual.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
